    As a person well versed in lifting these trucks! (I have extensive write up's on lifts and other things in the 2nd gen section)

    A drop bracket is much better off roading then a 3" lift! Allows taller tires with less cutting. (Increase left to right center clearance!)

    Raises the truck higher so front to rear has better clearance!
    Keeps stock geometry so you have better wheel articulation!
    Offroarding with a 3" lift is like hiking in high heels! (Very Limited down travel of the suspension is left after the lift) More prone to wheel lift off then a DB drop kit. (Basic geometry!)

    Only negative is cutting the cross member. But the manufactures of the kits take that into account and give you a way stronger cross member!
    Stay away from Fabtech! They are O.K. but they do not drop the front diff as much as BDS or Procomp. to maintain a good CV angle you want the better angles.
    And yes it can fit 37's! But you may need to do the BMC, and hammer back the pinch welds so you can stuff the tires!

    Also remember the higher you go your CG will increase so wheel accordingly!

    Good luck!

    Ha. I was going to link either this or 90yotas thread but saw how old it was.

    37’s are old. They fit easy. New hotness is 40’s. I’d start there.

    I'm already having to shave the shark fin if I want to go 37s. It almost rubs the garage seal as it sits today.

    Although...I could just buy a new house with a taller garage? That's IT!

    Just cut a little slot for the fin!

    Or tear the house down and build a bigger garage door. That sounds like the tw way!

    I wasn't quite at that level, but I was definitely aiming for it on 33s back in 1997...
